Clark’s All-Sports expands to buy John’s Marine Service

June 5, 2012

Expansion underway

Clark’s All-Sports owner and founder Ray Clark figured that it made perfect sense to expand on a business that has been selling boats across the country for several years now.
When John’s Marine Service owner John Monette decided that it was time to retire, or semi-retire, he decided to sell his well-established business across Highway 20 from the Colville Municipal Airport (192 DeGrief Road) to Clark earlier this year.
Clark’s Marine & Motor Sports is in the process of expanding its showroom and service offerings.

‘It’s time to retire’

John Monette sells John’s Marine Service

John Monette admits that running a boat business all these years is something of a departure for an old farm kid.
Monette, on the cusp of his 76th birthday, recently sold his long-running John’s Marine Service to Ray Clark and Clark’s All-Sports earlier this year.
It was a good move for both Colville businessmen. Clark, who has renamed the business Clark’s Marine & Motor Sports, plans to expand on the company’s marine division and Monette says it’s time to retire.

Connell rallies in the ninth to win

Colville came agonizingly close to capturing the school’s first state fast-pitch softball championship last Saturday afternoon at Columbia Playfield in Richland.
But like last spring, when Connell edged the Indians in the State 1A semifinals in Spokane, the Eagles broke a few more Colville hearts with a heart-stopping 4-3 championship game win in nine innings.
Close…oh, so close.
